The story of the first Pullmans in Oregon is told in its
October issue by theJPuUrnan News. It depicts an Oregon
that was very new, very raw, but even then on the road
toward the building of cities and railroads which exist today.

ails to residents of this city- l:c j , ;
Asking that a protest be sounded at the inertia of the
)wers that be concerning the proper numbering at the

f his warm bed to' respond to a sick call, from a residence

that a railroad train will be' run from London to Edinburgh
for half a penny and that within that period we shall all
abandon gas, coal, steam and electricity for power, light andt

I Sunset chooses to stress the fact that Miss la whence had
to save before she could invest and that thrift was the be
' -inning of her fortune, but we of Portland and of Oregon
may well emphasize the "understanding eyes": that "enabled
jMiss Iawrence to see and appreciate the opportunities that

unusual chance for sane and confident investment. ; It would
fce idle to deny that financial difficulties of a! comparatively
few individuals, brought "about last spring ailocal epidemic
of caution that was unduly exaggerated. Nobody knew of
anything in particular to be afraid of, but many were in
clined to wait and make stare that the road was safe ahead.
The tcwa has 'held its breath long- enough,! waiting a dis
aster that hasn't happened. We've been crossing bridges

It's time for Portland people to wake up to the fact that
the city's values are sound and, its future ! assured. The

PHILADELPHIA, i Oct. 27.
fAPJ. The United; States gun
boat Scorpion, famous ship of the
navy, after 29 years service on
all the seas, was mustered out of
commission today as part of the
observance of Navy day at the
Philadelphia navy yard."
Rear, Admiral Thomas P. Ma
gruder, commandant of the yard,
was in charge, of the, ceremonial.
In. an address to the crew he
said it was "like ; retiring of an
admiral at the age of 64." ;
The Scorpion on which has
served many of the navy's noted
figures at one time or another,
was a converted yacht, bought by
the government and commissioned
in 1898. . '
The crew lined the decks while
detachment of. . marines was
drawn up on the deck house with
the ship's band nearby as Admiral
Magruder and his Staff in brilliant
fall dress uniform came aboard
Captain H. A. Jones, commander;
of the Scorpion, waited with his
etaff, petty officers and the bos'n
at the main; gangway, up which
the admiral strode. ... .'
The bositt," in picturesque navy
fashion, piped r the admiral over
the side -tooting v chortling note
on hla whistle as the commandant
came aboard. Likewise, the band
as is customary, greeted the ad
miraL with "flourishes and ruf
fles' on the7 drums and brass.
- The admiral was ' escorted to
the Quarterdeck where he shook
hands with; Commander Jones, and
congratulated him on the. voyage
home of the Scorpion.-
"'Men, the admiral then ,told
the . crew, ""there Is something
touching about this hauling down
of tho flag because this old ship
may never go, to sea again. It Is
like an admiral "retiring at the
age of 64. He hauls down hie
flag and realizes,: at last, he Is
has-been. " J .

More than 40 per cent of the

This Is due to tne iact mat m
Marion county there are 10 large
fruit berry - and vegetable pack
ing plants, and within a radius of
35. miles of Salem there are 15
Additional nlants. making a total
of 25 canneries within the Salem
district. ; More than one-sixth of
the canned fruits packed in the

Indications are that' during the
next few years the industry wUl
continue : to develop more rapidly
than of recent years. Fifteen
years ago there was but one can-
nine d! Ant in . Salem, with an an

there are six large plants in Salem,
with another Just across the river
In West Salem, that have an an
nual output of more than 1,000,H
000 cases. New plants are being
erected in Salem at the rate of one
every three years.
In Marion county, Oregon, the

alone during the 192$ season, was
considered larger In number of
cases than the entire salmon pack
of the Columbia river for the samel
year, K ' :
At tie height of the canning

than 4000 are. employed In the!
11 canning plants. It is estimated I
that : the payroll from these can-
neries ; and - the money ; paid: by
growers for harvesting their crops
will annually exceed ?1,500,000.
Due to Its favorable location in
the center of the fertile Willam

will continue its lead as the ban-!
